Exposing the data from NARCIS with VIVO

  1. 1. Data Archiving and Networked Services Exposing the data from NARCIS with VIVO Christophe Guéret (@cgueret) Meertens Institute, January 18DANS is een instituut van KNAW en NWO
  2. 2. Data does not travel well...● Publications from Frank van Harmelen● Decreasing number from system to system 148 38 13
  3. 3. Web of Science has 43 publications
  4. 4. and Google 283 !
  5. 5. Why is information lost ?● Incentives ○ Keeping one data source up to date is costly ○ Keeping several is even more so!● Standards ○ Information that can not be expressed is lost● Confusion ○ Re-invent the well & (partially) duplicate information
  6. 6. What do we want ?● The dream: single, user-curated, consistent and up to date source that knows everything about someone● Many aiming at being the one
  7. 7. OK then, lets do that !● Need three ingredients: ○ Web 2.0 platform ○ Incentive ○ Network effect● Bonuses ○ Generates a lot of data ○ All the data is entered and store with the desired schema
  8. 8. But...● One-size-fits-all solutions are though to design. Users may be left unhappy.● Incentives are hard: why would one update Academia.edu rather than ResearchGate ?● There will always be several publishers of data and messy/incomplete/... data inputs
  9. 9. So lets try something else...● Use the Web !● Set up an ecosystem of ○ Authorities: assign identifiers to things ○ Vocabularies: define standards to express the data ○ Publishers: expose the data they have ○ Consumers: generate value out of the data● Apply Linked Open Data principles to interconnect all the data
  10. 10. A research information ecosystem
  11. 11. Prototype worked on at DANS● Use data harvested for NARCIS as CSV● Use VIVO harvester to convert the CSV files and load the data into the VIVO portal● So far ○ running VIVO instance for the VU ○ no link to other data sets ○ no data consumer
  12. 12. Demo !http://demo.datanetworkservice.nl:8080/vivo/
